There is a great deal of excitement surrounding the WWE product currently with the Royal Rumble and WrestleMania 31 approaching, but there is plenty of intrigue surrounding the 2015 pay-per-view schedule as whole too.
Although WWE has yet to make official announcements regarding the names, dates and locations for their pay-per-view events this year, SkySports.com has released a full listing:
|2015 WWE PPV Schedule|
|Royal Rumble||Jan. 25||Philadelphia||Wells Fargo Center|
|Fast Lane||Feb. 22||Memphis, Tennessee||FedExForum|
|WrestleMania XXXI||March 29||Santa Clara, California||Levi's Stadium|
|Extreme Rules||April 26||Chicago||Allstate Arena|
|Payback||May 17||Baltimore||Royal Farms Arena|
|Money in the Bank||June 14||Columbus, Ohio||Nationwide Arena|
|Battleground||July 19||St. Louis||Scottrade Arena|
|SummerSlam||Aug. 23||East Rutherford, New Jersey||Izod Center|
|Night of Champions||Sept. 20||Houston||Toyota Center|
|Hell in a Cell||Oct. 25||Los Angeles||Staples Center|
|Survivor Series||Nov. 22||Atlanta||Philips Arena|
|TLC||Dec. 13||Boston||TD Garden|
There aren't many significant differences between the 2015 and 2014 schedules with the exception of Elimination Chamber being changed to Fast Lane. With only one WWE World Heavyweight Championship currently, the need for a Chamber match has lessened, especially if Brock Lesnar remains the titleholder.
Also, a few events will take place a bit earlier in 2015, including WrestleMania XXXI, which will be held on March 29 rather than its usual April slot.
That change also moves Extreme Rules from May to April and Payback from June to May.
In addition to that, SummerSlam has been moved from its traditional home base in Los Angeles to the New York City area for 2015. In its place, L.A. will instead host Hell in a Cell.
WWE could certainly opt to make some changes if it so chooses since it has refrained from making this schedule official, however, all signs point to this being the pay-per-view outlook for 2015.
